"From Childish... to Billy Childish"

At some point, when no one was looking, Gemini Cricket grew up. A band that a year ago (delightfully) sounded like the sweetest little sugary group you could ever book for your young elementary-school son’s birthday party is in the process of becoming something more sullen, if not downright dirtier & nastier than any of us ever could have imagined.

Gemini Cricket is the virile offspring of a married couple—for only a married couple could conceive of something so simultaneously wholesome & frightening—named Blake and Sara, and an eavesdropping neighbor on drums named Marie. When I saw them last year, they were all kazoos & handclaps, shy winsome smiles. Last month at the GoBar they seemed about to spontaneously combust, lost in reverb and sharp angry guitars. Check out the latest demos posted at if you’re interested in proving that such a thing as evolution exists. Even the most hardened creationist, darwin-hating, evangelist would throw up his hands in surrender when presented with the band’s supernatural mutation from the slide-whistling, self-deperecating, insect-mentioning, nursey-rhyming “Cricket Theme” to the stomping, filthy “Sizzle Pop”.

We make newer tracks available on our Myspace page for free download.



Part 1: "The How & Why"
Gemini Cricket began with Sara & Blake & Summer camp. We decided to learn new instruments and picked up drums, bass and keyboard. We wrote some songs about two crazy kids in their 20's and played our first house show at the Peach Palace.

Part 2: "Crickets in the Moonlight"
Gemini Cricket wrote new songs and asked Jay to help out on guitar and banjo. We started playing regular house-shows at the Oxford Heat.

Part 3: "Leapin' Crickets"
Davy Gibbs filled in on drums and stuck to them for good beginning with a show at Repent. Blake started playing guitar. More songs were written for more instruments and things got loud fast!

Part 4:"Pop! Go the Crickets"
Our pals Missy & Raoul from the French Toasts started pitching in with trumpet, kazoo, slide whistle and smokin' dance floor moves. We played a whole buncha shows in a year. We released a cassette tape with our first batch of songs titled "The How & Why."

Part 5: "Chirpin' & Strummin'"
Sometimes we played as a duo and sometimes everyone was involved! We loved making fun tunes with friends and had a feeling Gemini Cricket would continue to grow and grow like a Rocktopus tour-guide on a southern twang odyssey of hugs. Wyatt played some drums with us on tour. Things got really busy really fast so we decided to take some time out.

part 6: "Crickets Abroad"
Sara and Blake bought a banjo and drove into the sun.

part 7: "Metamorphosis"
After a nice break Marie showed up with her floor tom beats and we wrote all new songs with lots of nasty guitar hooks and drenched everything in reverb.
